A Threadcatcher present for me!

I seem to have been busy making presents for other people for some time now so I though I would allow myself the time this afternoon to make something for me!


I have had this threadcatcher in mind for a little while. Unfortunately I cannot remember where I got the idea from so if it was on your blog then please do let me know so that I can credit you or your source.


Once I had worked out how to cut the correct size equilateral triangle this was a doddle and probably the prototype for a few more presents!
I had a couple of oddments of Egyptian print fabric left over from some placemats I made earlier in the year. I love the fabrics and wanted something for me in them so this was ideal. The turquoise beads are from a mixed bag that I have had for some time.


I hope you are having a good week - it has turned very cold here.
